Broward is a county that caters to everyone. People more geared towards leisure can head to our beautiful beaches and lounges. Or if you're more sports inclined there's lots of opportunities for watersports all year round. For those looking for more cultural immersive experiences there are tons of Caribbean and Latin American restaurants and various tight knit minority communities. And people falling in the LGBTQ+ community can find themselves having the time of their lives in our cities like Wilton Manors. The party doesn't stop in Broward, it's an incredibly diverse county anyone can find themselves enjoying.

Broward County is where I grew up and I still live today at 26 years old. This county, usually more towards the West side, is very safe; and it’s really well-maintained with an amazing schooling system for grade school, as well as the colleges in this area and/or near it. Broward College is excellent to get an AA or go to Nursing school and FAU to the North, or FIU to the south. I have been to a lot of places around the world helping the unfortunate, and there’s nothing like calm, quiet, friendly, and oh so green Broward County.
I love broward county! I have everything I need close by! Grocery store, pharmacy and even local restaurants. You dont have to drive for miles to get what you need or want.
